WHAT THE CRITICS SAY
"I WOULD LIKE TO THANK SHONA FOR ENGAGING WITH OUR TEAM AT THE MAGPIE CENTRE TO UPDATE AND IMPROVE OUR HR PROCEDURES AND ENSURE THAT WE ARE FULLY COMPLIANT WITH ALL CURRENT LEGAL HR REQUIREMENTS.
SHONA HAS DESIGNED AND COMPLETED NEW AND BESPOKE UP TO DATE HANDBOOKS FOR OUR STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS AS WELL AS PRODUCING ALL OF THE REQUIRED POLICY DOCUMENTS TO GO WITH BOTH HANDBOOKS.
THE RESULTS WERE WELL RECEIVED BY BOTH STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS AND ARE A USEFUL RESOURCE AND POINT OF REFERENCE FOR TH WHOLE TEAM.
THE PROFESSIONAL, TIMELY AND SUPPORTIVE HELP THAT WE RECEIVED FROM SHONA DURING A RECENT STAFFING ISSUE HELPED US TO UNDERSTAND OUR LEGAL AND MORAL RESPONSIBILITIES AS WELL AS GUIDING US THROUGH THE HR PROCESS TO ACHIEVE THE BEST POSSIBLE OUTCOME FOR BOTH OUR EMPLOYEE AND US AS EMPLOYERS.
I HAVE NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING LILAC HR TO ANY BUSINESS NEEDING SUPPORT AND ADVICE FOR ALL MATTERS RELATING TO THE MANAGEMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES."

"IT HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO GET TO KNOW SHONAOVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS IN WHAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS CHALLENGING TIMES!
WHEN WE WERE IN THE DARK AND NEEDING SUPPORT, SHONA HAS BEEN A SHINING LIGHT WITH THE INFORMATION WE HAVE NEEDED AT THE TIP OF HER FINGERS. WHEN WE REQUIRED A CONTRACT, SHE ACTED QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY WITH THE UTMOST PROFESSIONALISM AND SHE IS ALWAYS THERE WHEN I HAVE NEEDED ANY ADVICE.
IN SHORT, I CANNOT RECOMMEND LILAC HR HIGHLY ENOUGH. I LOOK FORWARD TO GROWING OUR BUSINESS AND SHONA'S INPUT WILL BE INVALUABLE WITH THAT PROCESS.
